How to use stretch in a sentence?

  1. David Wallinga:

    We’ve seen some real positive developments recently among the companies that rank highly in the report, and also with their suppliers, that’s a big part of the optimism behind the report. I think it’s not a stretch to say that a fast food company that wants to serve chicken that’s been raised without routine antibiotics should be able to do so right now with no delay. Companies are in business to satisfy their customers, and like never before, customers are asking for meat raised without antibiotics.

  3. Jonathan Boiria:

  5. Maddie Kristell:

    I think it's somewhat jarring to a lot of people in the area, considering we had a considerable dry stretch this summer where it didn't rain for a while and we had the heat wave as well, so kind of bouncing between opposite ends of the spectrum this year, so it's been pretty dynamic for folks in the area.
